Another (eyewitness) perspective on the recent voting in (rump) Ukraine:

Launch of the referendum on integration into the Russian Federation in the Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions | MR Online

"23 September 2022 marks the start of the referendum on integration into the Russian Federation in the Donbass (Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics), Zaporozhye and Kherson regions.

"Voting conditions in each region vary depending on the security situation.

"On this Friday morning, I join a group of four women who are part of their district’s electoral commission at around 8.30 am.

"Despite the cold and the pouring rain, they are going door-to-door for 12 hours to allow their fellow citizens to vote for the referendum on integration with the Russian Federation, without leaving their homes.

"Equipped with a paper list of voters, ballot papers and a portable sealed ballot box, the four women have four days to visit as many voters as possible.

"The aim is to minimise the number of voters who will have to go to the polling stations on 27 September 2022 to make their wishes known in the referendum on the integration of the DPR into the Russian Federation.

"Because of the daily shelling by the Ukrainian army against the residential areas of Donetsk, Gorlovka and Makeyevka, it would be extremely dangerous if long queues formed in front of the polling stations."

These are Russian occupied territories, of course they're being shelled by the ukrainians they want their country back.

Mass graves in Donbass are filled with Russian-speaking Ukrainians who objected when the government they elected in 2010 was overthrown by a right-wing coup in 2014. Ukrainians and Russians with an understanding of history know this coup was just America's latest attempt at regime change in Moscow paid for with Ukrainian blood and soil.

Anyone who believes this was an honest election is beyond rational discussion.

Well why not, I mean there are tens of millions of impossibly stupid fascist democrats who believe Biden actually received 81-million votes, which is very likely 40-million more than he truly received, so why can't Russia benefit from the exact same application of mathematics??? :banana:

The effective resistance of Ukraine to the Russian invasion demonstrates that the vast majority of Ukrainians do not want to become part of Russia. If the mass graves in Donbass were filled by Russian sympathizers in 2014 they would be more decayed than they are.

Putin and Biden are not even the same species
You're actually right, one is a competent world leader the other is a deranged Alzheimer's patient, with a crackhead son, who shits his pants and brags to the media his butt's been wiped

I certainly do believe that the election of 2020 was honest and legitimate. Public opinion surveys indicated throughout Trump's presidency that he was the only president on record who never had majority support. Whenever Trump's lawyers sued for election fraud they had no evidence to present. Judges, including Republican judges, and even judges Trump appointed, dismissed claims of Democratic election fraud.

Yep nothing you say should be taken serious after that

I'm sure there's atrocities on both sides but that doesn't change the fact that it's Ukrainian territory not Russian territory.

Neither one is a competent leader.
